TEN THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU written by Karen Mc Cullah Lutz & Kirsten Smith based on 'Taming of the Shrew" by William Shakespeare Revision November 12, 1997 PADUA HIGH SCHOOL - DAY Welcome to Padua High School,, your typical urban-suburban high school in Portland, Oregon. Loners, Lovers, the In and the Out Crowd rub sleep out of their eyes and head for the main building. CAMERON I don't think so, ma'am MISS PERKY Then go forth. Cameron rises to leave and makes eye contact with PATRICK VERONA, a sullen-looking bad ass senior who waits outside Ms Perky's door. Miss Perky looks down at her file and up at Patrick MISS PERKY (continuing) Patrick Verona.
PADUA HIGH PARKING LOT - DAY KAT STRATFORD, eighteen, pretty -- but trying hard not to be -- in a baggy granny dress and glasses, balances a cup of coffee and a backpack as she climbs out of her battered, baby blue '75 Dodge Dart.
A stray SKATEBOARD clips her, causing her to stumble and spill her coffee, as well as the contents of her backpack. She grabs his skateboard and uses it to SHOVE him against a car, skateboard tip to his throat. A path clears for her as she marches through a pack of fearful students and SLAMS open the door, entering school. GIRLS' ROOM - DAY BIANCA STRATFORD, a beautiful sophomore, stands facing the mirror, applying lipstick. BIANCA You might wanna think about it Leave the girls' room and enter the hallway. The greetings continue as Chastity remains wordless and unaddressed by her side. GUIDANCE COUNSELOR'S OFFICE - DAY CAMERON JAMES, a clean-cut, easy-going senior with an open, farm-boy face, sits facing Miss Perky, an impossibly cheery guidance counselor.
The young RIDER dashes over to help, trembling when he sees who his board has hit. Cowering in fear, he attempts to scoop up her scattered belongings. Her less extraordinary, but still cute friend, CHASTITY stands next to her. HALLWAY - DAY- CONTINUOUS Bianca is immediately greeted by an admiring crowd, both boys and girls alike. MISS PERKY I'm sure you won't find Padua any different than your old school.
MISS PERKY It says here you exposed yourself to a group of freshmen girls.
She motions for Patrick to enter her office and Cameron shuffles out the door, bumping into MICHAEL ECKMAN, a lanky, brainy senior who will either end up a politician or game show host.
They head out of the office MICHAEL (continuing) So -- which Dakota you from?
Michael steers Cameron through the crowd as he points to various cliques. DEREK (very stoned) Michael, my brother, peace Cameron turns to follow Michael as they walk into the cafeteria. Michael sits with a group of studious-looking teens. Cameron stops listening as BIANCA walks by, and we go SLO MO. She's not allowed to date until her older sister does. ENGLISH CLASS - DAY A room full of bored seniors doodle and scare off into space MS. HALLWAY - DAY- CONTINUOUS Prom posters adorn the wall. The beautiful people pass, in full jock/cheerleader splendor. MICHAEL (continuing) Derek - save some for after lunch, bub? CAFETERIA - DAY - CONTINUOUS Loud music and loud students. MICHAEL I could start with your haircut, but it doesn't matter. I guess that does it for our analysis of The Old Man and the Sea. Michael waves to DEREK, the one with the longest dreads. Kat, the girl we saw as we entered the school, slowly cakes off her glasses and speaks up. JOEY As opposed to a bitter self-righteous hag who has no friends? MICHAEL (continuing) To the right, we have the Coffee Kids. A cloud of pot smoke hovers above them MICHAEL (continuing) Big Marley fans. Semi-political, but mostly, they watch a lot of Wild Kingdom, if you know what I mean. JOEY DORSEY, a well-muscled jock with great cheekbones, makes fun of her from his row. MICHAEL Yeah, but these guys have never seen a horse. They pass an espresso cart with a group of teens huddled around it. Several white boys in dreadlocks and Jamaican knit berets lounge on the grass. KAT This book is about a guy and his fishing habit. He was an abusive, alcoholic misogynist who had a lot of cats. SCHOOL COURTYARD - DAY Michael continues the tour MICHAEL And these delusionals are the White Rastae. KAT (continuing) Frankly, I'm baffled as to why we still revere Hemingway. Really gets fired up now KAT I guess the school board thinks because Hemingway's male and an asshole, he's worthy of our time She looks up at Ms. Patrick, lounging in his seat in the back row, elbows a crusty-looking crony, identified by the name SCURVY, embroidered on his workshirt. Chastity opens the note and reads: INSERT - "JOEY DORSEY SAID HI TO ME IN THE HALL! KAT As always, thank you for your excellent guidance. SOPHOMORE ENGLISH CLASS - DAY Bianca ignores the droning teacher as she writes a note in big flowing handwriting. Bianca folds the note and passes it behind her with a flip of her hair to CHASTITY. GUIDANCE COUNSELOR'S OFFICE - DAY Kat now sits before Miss Perky. KAT I still maintain that he kicked himself in the balls. MISS PERKY The point is Kat -- people perceive you as somewhat ... MISS PERKY (continuing) You might want to work on that Kat rises from her chair with a plastic smile matching the counselor's. Shakespeare makes him a bit daunting, but I'm sure you're all doing your best. By the way, Bobby Rictor's gonad retrieval operation went quite well, in case you're interested. She grimaces, as if she's referring to a medical condition. Bianca looks up and smiles the smile of Daddy's little girl.
